[Yasmin_discussions] New Media Art Organisations in Netherlands lose funding

The New Media Art Organisations funding in Netherlands have been since more then 20 years a model for working in art and media and with many issues central to contemporary art, and showing how necessary is the Istitution's presence in a full development of cultural reasearch.
This model has allowed a great amount of experiences that have contributed to shape contemporary art and media, as well as new music, new comunications, inter/relationships with other cultures, etc...
V2, Waag, Mediamatic, Steim, Nimk, Balie etc.. (and all the Universities' work related to them!) really defined concepts and structures of extreme modernity.
This important platform of thought and actions has produced the most interesting and stimulating experiences.
We must find a way to show the dutch government to defend their outstanding cultural work and defend those important achievements.
